Emissions from military activities are of significant concern. These include air emissions from Range operations and weapon disposal processes, as well as noise emissions from jet engines or blasts. The former are often regulated in terms of composition, including particle size and contaminant levels and the latter can have an impact on the community or on the warfighter who are in close proximity to the source. In this technical session we will try to provide an overview of the efforts we have underway to monitor and/or mitigate these emissions.
